Hi Scott, please put the common name of the species in the common name box. While 'lonesome george' may be the name of the individual, it is not the common name. Any information like that would be perfect to go into the notes section, along with a short description of how he got that name. Don't forget to add the scientific name, and a short description and habitat information to complete your spotting, thank you!
